BN Pick Your Fave: Tonye Garrick and Sika Osei in TNL Origami Blazer Dress

Adesola Ade-Unuigbe



BN Pick Your FaveHi BN Style Watchers – with all the excitement of GTBank’s Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2014 as well as the ongoing Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Africa (click here to see all the runway showcases), we almost forgot to bring a new dose of ‘BN Pick your Fave’.

This time we have two lovely, young and new-school stylish divas rocking the same TNL origami blazer dress, albeit in different colours.

The Dress

TNLD23-2 TNLD25-2

Sika Osei


Sika Osei

Studio 53’s Ghanaian presenter Sika Osei rocked her look first for the 2014 Aquafina Elite Model Look competition. She wore the white version of the dress and she completed her look with a pair of black and transparent pumps, a statement ring and stud earrings.

Sika Osei kept her makeup light with dark eye-shadow and a pink pout. Her look was soft and feminine.

Tonye Garrick


Tonye Garrick

Singer Tonye Garrick rocked a black version of the TNL origami blazer dress to Day 1 of the 2014 GTBank’s Lagos Fashion & Design Week.

Going for a more edgy yet laidback look, Tonye Garrick completed her outfit with a pair of black knee-length gladiator sandals, a black bowler hat, a black clutch and silver earrings.

For her makeup, Tonye went goth with black lipstick for the fashion show.

So, who is your fave?

    I prefer the way the lady in white wore the look, Tonye Garrick’s combo of the jacket dress with gladiators made it look to busy… sometimes less is more

    The dress seems to fit Sika better, but I like the whole outfit on Tonye.

      It seem like she is trying to be edgy so she doesn’t blend in with the plethora of long weave wearing Naija female singers. But I must say, her new edgy style seems quite contrived. However, it is gaining her some recognition, so it is definitely working in her favor.

    Tonye’s look combines edge and sofistication beautifully. The white dress looks good but Tonye gives us umph! and pow! with a hint of demure and I’m loving the all black e’rythang look.

    SIKA for fit, and for pairing it with those shoes!!!

    Two completely different looks(or styling).Tonye’s is edgy and eccentric while Sika’s is classy and demure.But even if I would wear it like Sika considering how laid back my style is,I would have to give this one to Tonye.She just never does any wrong in my eye…and that her hair!!!

  25. ME!!!!!!!
